Canadian Studies Announcements
Message from the Consul General
Dear Canadians and Friends of Canada,
Prime Minister Trudeau reaffirmed that no matter who we love or how we identify, all of us deserve to feel safe and secure, live free from discrimination and persecution, and express ourselves fully. We must continue to fight against homophobia, transphobia, and biphobia, and to defend gender expression, gender identity and sexual orientation rights. I am personally committed to fight hatred, honour love, and defend human rights for all.
It is in this spirit that I would like to invite you to join me to march together in the San Francisco Pride parade on Sunday June 24th.
Please note the link here for the invitation/RSVP. Please forward to your Canadian friends :
The march will begin around 11:00am, at the Embarcadero, and will end at the City Hall, at around 14:00. Please join me, together, we can build a world where all of us are free to be who we are and love who we love.
Dress comfortably, colorfully, bring your friends, family, your dogs…and your bottle of water. The exact departure point will be communicated very soon – look for Canadian rainbow flags.
For the first time this year, we will be joining the Mexican Consulate as a demonstration of North American solidarity!
Looking forward to meeting you!
Rana Sarkar
